I would just like to start off this post by saying thank you to everyone who sent well wishes my way, I really appreciate your kind words of comfort:) I am feeling so much better today and have started replying to your messages, you are lovely, lovely people!!
I have posted a few photos of the last few days and today…   


Our tomato plants have all been staked and the lower side branches, thinned out.

Our Lamb’s Ears are flowering for the first time! Hooray:)

Caiden and Kye building dams in our little ‘stream’

There is a new pattern that has been desperate to be knitted, but has had to wait, because I have been a little under the weather. Today, I decided I couldn’t think about it anymore and had to start. Red and beige… hmmmm what could it be?? A Christmas theme perhaps?? I will show you as soon as it is finished:)

Jen discovered a heart shaped Loganberry, we have a delicious crop…

Friends, it is so good to be back here again writing and sharing about our life. Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit a while…
In gratitude,


Today I Am Grateful For…

Today I am grateful for:
~ Older brother reading to his younger brother
~ Tomatoes that seed themselves and gift us with food
~ Treasures from my childhood
~ Crafting and sewing little gnomes with Kye
~ My family, who are so creative and made their own Halloween costumes from what we have around our home
~ Thunderstorms… and 35 ml of rain during the night
~ Friends that help me when my car battery has died and Caiden needs to go to his cub boating course!
~ Wonderful neighbours!
~ My lovely husband who likes to surprise me! (I love surprises:)
~ Chickens
~ This lovely space where I can share our life and all the amazing people I have met along the way, thank you:)
What are you grateful for today?


What a lovely surprise Erin and I got today when we went to the post office to collect parcels. There, amongst the packages was a brown envelope addressed to Erin. She was so excited to have a parcel addressed just for her! She opened it and inside was the most gorgeous embroidered felt chicken, so beautifully hand sewn from my lovely friend Kristen. When I saw what you sent my daughter, I cried… how thoughtful of you to have sent her this lovely gift for the loss of her dear chicken, Alice… I have no words… Thank You so much. Losing Alice was very difficult for Erin and you have helped her tremendously with this precious gift… such beautiful detail… We are also thrilled to own a copy of one of your books! You are wonderful!!

Isn’t this gorgeous…

I have finished my custom knit for someone overseas, the request was for a royal purple lion, he is a gift for a baby shower…

I am still knitting as fast as I can for Jenna’s birthday, the Shalom Cardi has had to wait a few days so that I can finish Jenna’s birthday cardigan. I just have to pick up the stitches for the sleeves and knit them and then it is finished:) These cardigans for my family have become my favourite item of clothing to knit:)

This is such a special plant, I was gifted with this orchid on the day Jenna was born by my mother-in-law, almost 14 years ago. Each year from May onwards it produces the most beautiful blooms.

Happy Wednesday…


Gratitude Thursday…

Richard’s dog bite is almost healed…

Jenna is cycling in the green and black…

Today, I am grateful for:

  • The signs of Autumn slowly starting to show…
  • Our one and only pumpkin that grew in the compost heap, self sewn from kitchen veggie scraps, ready to be picked…
  • Another African Flower Hexagon almost finished and I just can’t seem to stop making them, I am sure there are plenty of other things that need to be done around here besides crochet, but oh… I am having so much fun! I have found this lovely cotton in my stash and it is perfect for my crochet project 🙂
  • Richard working from home this afternoon and helping Kye ride to his bike for the first time…
  • Newly planted veggie beds…
  • We are so happy for Jen, her photo is in the newspaper for the cycling race she took part in, she is beaming with joy!
  • For the beauty that surrounds us, that can be seen in a single flower…

What are you grateful for today?
In gratitude,
